+18 Soulful Saturday

+18 Soulful Saturday

As seems to be the pattern for this year so far, I am still working on my project for last week’s theme. The theme from last week was nemesis and the week before that the theme was intertwined. My project below is a combination of both themes. I figured out this week that time is my nemesis and so I am trying to incorporate the female human form in with the tree branches. I want to show the female form in various stages of life and it’s proving difficult. Part of me thinks this project would be better served in clay three dimensionally which is how I tend to think. Here’s my work, so far:

I am working on the pregnant female form being composed of tree branches. I don't think it's even close to where I want it yet.

Very, very rough sketch of the pregnant female form being composed of tree branches.                                                      I don’t think it’s even close to where I want it yet.

For this week’s theme, I’ve chosen solitary. As always, feel free to join me and post a link as soon as you are done under this post so that I, and hopefully others, can comment on your work. Photographs, paintings, drawings, poems, short stories… whatever moves you, are all acceptable.

    I’m so glad you said the female form was intentional! When I scrolled fast, I saw that and I love the trees even more for it. Keep going- this will find its way.

    and also, elderly hands. The branches almost look like elderly hands.


    • Elderly hands… I can see that and it’s a great idea. My worry is being on the edge of things getting cheesy. So, more abstract like we’ve discussed will have to be the direction I go… that’s a good thing considering my favorite artists tend to be Abstract Expressionists.
